Baseball career

Playing

Merrill began his baseball career as a catcher for the Maine Black Bears, where he also played football and earned a degree in physical education. He was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1966 free-agent draft. He spent that season in the class-A New York-Penn League with the Batavia Clippers, and the following year with single-A teams in Bakersfield and Eugene. In 1968 and 1969, Merrill was at the double-A level with the Reading Phillies, and returned to Eugene in 1970 and 1971 while that team was at the triple-A level. His playing career ended after the 1971 season due to a leg injury.

Managerial

Merrill's managerial record started in 1978 with the West Haven Yankees of the Eastern League. He led the team to the best overall record in the league that season, and to a first-place finish in 1979. Whe
